An Illinois concealed carry bill may need a supermajority vote of 3/5ths to pass due to "home rule." In Illinois, "home rule" allows for local governments to enforce regulations that are stricter than state law, but this measure usually applies to taxes and public safety powers. Cam Edwards speaks with Todd Vandermyde, NRA Illinois Lobbyist, who explains that this is not the first year anti-gunners have invoked "home rule" on firearms issues, but that there are some advantages to getting the supermajority--including the fact that a governor's veto would be overridden.
